my device is galaxy ace s5830i..i have already rooted my device and used CW Recovery and taken a copy of my original system.i wanted to set up a custom rom i restarted and reset and deleted the cash then installed the rom.i think it was Retribution beta then i wanted to update to that custom rom (MindCR ICS) all i did i restarted my phone of course went into R mode and reset and deleted the cash then installed that next custom rom .
after installing completed when i rebooted it only gave me (samsung galaxy ace s5830i) logo and doesn't open the system when i restart it doesn't go into recovery or download mode it only gives me again the same logo.i used odin v 1.81 and the latest version it doesn't recognize the phone and i can't go into download mode.
I flashed + rooted (strangely in that order, which means I must have rooted my phone ages ago.. and then locked my bootloader after flashing..?)...
I do have Rom manager installed... but I don't quite recall how I ended up flashing the stock rom onto the phone.. Anyways, as I did seem to reset my phone, I upgraded all the apk packs and I'm pretty happy with the speed upgrade + ext2 internal space expansion.
As I now want to create a nandroid backup, so I can always come back to my current status, when I want a clean reinstall..!
My main question is that as I seem to have skipped creating a CWM recovery... if I do so now, will I loose all my data and go back to the basic stock rom?
The problem I'm facing right now is that I'm unable to boot into the recovery mode using either "adb reboot recovery" or the power on + vol buttons / menu button. (which means that I don't have the recovery mode installed.....)
So.... will I loose my current upgrades + phone settings (reset into factory mode), if I flash the recovery mode?
I'm trying to update my phone and it won't boot into download mode :X so I'm trying to do it with adb my problem is I can't get adb commands to work because I don't know what the path should be in the variables :C my location for adb is "C:Program Files (x86)Androidandroid-sdkplatform-tools.adb.exe".
Just FYI in case anyone wants to know: For download mode, with the phone turned off, fold the number 1 key on the QWERTY keyboard and the power button simultaneously For recovery mode, with the phone turned off, hold Volume Down, CAmera, and Power simultaneously. You navigate with volume UP/DOWN, select with HOME, Menu toggles to "Manual Mode", whatever that it.
I'm trying to download Life360 & it's stuck in downloading mode when I try to download it throught the play store. Nothing ever dowloads, I just see the horizontal bar with the download indicator "downloading".
When I try to get it downloaded from my computer to my phone by sending the link, I click on the link & get the message that it is already installed but then it starts trying to download the app with the message "Waiting for Wi-Fi". I don't use Wi-FI and I never knew this needed Wi-Fi to download. I dont' care to be charged for Wi-Fi.
How can I get this downloaded and why would I get a message that it is installed but get the above happening (i looked everywhere on my phone & it's not installed)?
I have the D-800 AT&T LG G2, It was rooted with KitKat 4.4.2. After I rooted my phone, I tried several different ways to install TWRP onto it. I tried FreeGee, adb shell, and straight from TWRP App, nothing worked, because when I tried to boot into TWRP it would just come up with the LG Logo and "Secure Boot Error" and "Certification Error" or something like that, then be a blank screen. I then just held the power button to turn it off, and it would turn back on and run fine, no problem. I figured it never installed right, and so I left TWRP alone. I know you are not supposed to take an OTA after install TWRP, but thinking TWRP never installed on the phone, I took the OTA, and now it will do the "Error" messages and blank screen, but my power off, power on trick doesn't work anymore. I can boot into Recovery Mode, but when I do a Factory Reset, the screen just goes blank. I have tried to put it into Download Mode by pressing Volume Up + Power when hooked up to a PC, but nothing happens. I feel as though its a tough brick.
I have been running varying versions of cyanogenmod 10.1 and 10.2 for about year on my T-Mobile Galaxy S3, but today I tried to update it to a version of 11 today without a computer, just on my phone through the standard Cyanogenmod built in rom updater. It downloaded fine, but when attempting to install it it had an error and stopped. Now the only thing my phone will do is boot into clockwork mod recovery mode, and download mode. The download mode won't be recognized by kies or my computer, though my computer does make a beep sound when I plug it in. I have tried a lot of things, but nothing at all will work so my phone is essentially bricked right now.
i had ICS installed in my Galaxy S2 by myself using Odin.
I tried to install Jelly bean , but failed and now its in Downloading mode. i dont know what to do know. i tired to install GB stuck which got stuck on Cache.img. i even dont know which stock rom i need. and where i can download it from ?
its in download mode which show on top left
ODIN MODE PRODUCT NAME: GT-I9100 CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: YES (1 COUNTS) CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL
I have a major problem, because I can't use the recovery mode, because something is removed on the system level, that the recovery mode needs to start. (it isn't knox)
Also I can't boot up the system, because of an endless loop, when the device booted into the system, because there is also something removed.
I have now tried to install several other roms, all 4.2.2, but It still has the same errors, because the system doesn't get wiped and the bug remains even on a fresh rom. Stock or Custom. The Aroma Installer would work, but there isn't a rom with it, that is flashable via odin, only cwm.
Only download mode can be used to do something with the system.
So here are my questions:
What can I do, to erase/wipe the system only using the download mode (with odin/?/heimdall/ ?
Bonus: What exactly does the recovery mode needs to start...? Bonus: Is there a flashable rom for the s4 that has the aroma installer ? Bonus: Why most rom recently only use cwm to get installed ? (I guess it has alot more options and is easier to handle..)
Today I've bought a lightly used gt-i9082l for about 100 bucks.
I did check b4 buying that it will go into recovery mode and it looks like a real thing there. In the past I've seen s4 clones that won't do that, or if they go into recovery mode, something looks fishy in there.
This one goes into recovery mode.
It has two sim card slots. I did verify online both IMEI numbers - I used imei.info - it correctly identified the phone as Grand dous something. If it is a fake, then it's a pretty damn good one!
So, I'm pressing vol-down, home, and power.... Samsung lettering appears (no logo), and then it boot straight up....
Following different tutorials on how to root my device, they all begin with instructing me to enter "download mode." They all seem to say that I need to press Power+Volume Down+Home and, when the warning screen appears, press Volume Up. Well, I hold down Power+Volume Down+Home (I check a video to make extra sure I was holding down the correct buttons) and all that the device ever does is continually display the initial splash screen, the reboot again. If I let go, the device goes into "manual mode" in which it prompts to reboot, update the device or factory reset it. Am I missing something?
I have a samsung galaxy pocket (s5300). Once upon a time I rooted it without using odin and it worked
After I tried some custom roms. But in the end I used my CWM Backup file to restore my original rom. But the damn thing just doesn't wanna connect to kies any more. Now I wan't to reflash it's stock firmware with Odin and I'm using a nokia cable (i know that I should use the real thing but it isn't sold in my country + in the begining I didn't have any trouble with the cable and my father flashed an android 4.0.4 on his Samsung Galaxy Nexus using this same cable). So when i put my phone in download mode and connected it gives me unknown usb device. I downloaded the drivers installed them tried again, but the damn thing just doesn't associate with them.
Than I showed it the proper drivers manually ( you know device manager-->update driver-->sellect driver; you get the picture) and still nothing. And i really use Kies and want to fix the problem. What should I do.
So I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 X (GT-7560M) and basically I tried to flash CM11 on it, and when after the reboot, the phone was stuck in a boot loop and I can not access nor the Recovery mode nor the Download mode. I did try a USB jig and still no luck.
I tried to do a cyanogenmod update, but something went wrong and now I can't boot into android. I've tried going back into the recovery mode to reflash the rom, but it freezes there. I've also tried flashing clockworkmod recovery through ODIN and download mode, but the download back never moves at all, so I'm not sure if I can't use download mode or if it's just that ODIN isn't doing anything.
I have never flashed a phone before. I followed instructions for ODIN. I installed the ADB drivers as indicated. (I had them installed on my windows 7 laptop previously for use with PDA net.) I shut down my phone then enter recovery mode. I then plug my phone into the computer and it never shows up as connected. I have tried this on my new IBM Thinkpad R500 (windows 7 32 bit) and on an older IBM laptop running Windows XP. I have used these same computers and phone connection before when I added MP3's to the phone.
When I let the phone boot up normally, both computers then recognize it and I can transfer files and such. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the ADB drivers multiple times, when the phone boots up normally I can use PDANet just fine so I doubt it is the connection. Is there something special I need to change in the phone settings before I shut it down and enter recovery mode? It seems like the phone isn't loading something as it boots into recovery mode. That it loads when I let it boot normally.
I rooted my android device with froyo yesterday. I installed the rom manager and its associated programs. Then I downloaded and installed the Cyanogen 6.0 mod. I was able to install the mod yesterday but I did not wipe my data clean which made the startup screen loop. I restored my phone, and now I can not reinstall the Cyanogen 6.0 mod. I go into the rom manager and select download, I select to wipe my data and to backup the system, then I restart in the Clock Work Recovery Mod. Once there I can not find the Cyanogen 6.0 to flash. I have been trying to get this to work for the past 24 hours!
I have helped some friends updating their SGS phones with the new software from the samsung firmwares website. However, now I'm stuck with a problem on one of the phones: It simply won't go into download mode. Normally, I press the volume down + menu key and while pressing them I push the power button. But nothing happens, excemt the phone starts up just like normal. I've done it the exact same way with all the models, but this model does not react like the rest of them. Today, I successfully updated 3 models this way, but model number 4 would not go into download mode. The model has the JM2 firmware now. The other 3 models had JM1 firmware, even though they were all purchased at the same date. Is there another way of getting the SGS into download mode?
After wasting over an hour trying to update to 2.1, I've given up on trying to get the drivers to work, but now my phone is stuck in Download Mode. Is there a way to get out of this, and turn my phone back on, so I can use it for now, before taking it to the Sprint store tomorrow to have them do the update?
I started a firmware update (using Odin) and, when downloading the amss, samsung says "Bad block table read fail". a lot of times and the progress bar (on Odin) stay locked. And the update cant finish. So, I restart the mobile... but it always come with the "Downloading..." screen. I've tried the recovery mode [vol down] + [start call] + [end call] buttons, but it always go to "Downloading..." screen. I can't exit from the download mode, and the phone doesn't start any more. I've removed the battery, but the same... the "diskette logo" come with "Downloading..." all the times. So, two questions: 1) About the "bad block" message, I think it's because I left "turned on" the USB debugging. so, I want to start the phone to turn it off again. This make sense? 2) How to get rid of this screen? How to stop the download mode?
I have a Galaxy S running stock ROM. No lag fix no custom ROM no root nothing. Just now I tried going into recovery/download mode to see what features it have by pressing the volume down+home+Power button. Now the phone says "Downloading Do not turn of target! What can I do to solve this problem. Till now I haven't tried to restart the phone? Should I do that?
